October Update

Things are getting back to “normal” here in Redding. I’m still getting caught up from being gone for a few days so we thank you for your patience. Last week we took in this poor boy, Romeo, who needed quite extensive orthopedic surgery for a fractured leg. He also needed eye surgery and to be neutered. I’m going to let him tell you his own story, but he is too proud to ask for help with his vet bills so I will do so on his behalf. Romeo’s bill was close to $2,000.00 so if any of you can help with a donation in any amount, it would be much appreciated by all of us. He is definitely a dog worth saving, but please read on:

Hello to all of you. My name is Romeo only because it was decided that “Lover Boy” was too awkward. I’m not sure how many faces would turn around if someone were calling me “Lover Boy” at the dog park and who might get slapped! Either way, I can live up to the name. I really do love everyone I meet, and it doesn’t matter if you have two or four legs or if my leg is broken. My story begins with someone in San Diego witnessing me getting hit by a car and taking me to the shelter. I was there for 10 days, and nothing was done for my hurt leg. Finally, the shelter staff called and the rescue was told that they had to get me out of the shelter the next day or I would be killed. Somehow it didn’t seem fair to the folks at the rescue that I should have to die because I had an irresponsible owner. I know they worked hard to get me to Redding the next day (it’s about a ten hour drive), but they got the job done so that Dr. Larry could take care of my broken leg. He would have had an easier time if he could have put me back together as soon as the fracture happened, but that was not the case. He did say the surgery was a “challenge”, but we are all hopeful that I will regain full use of my leg. So now you know my story, but I am putting all that in the past. What I have now in front of me is a blank page on which to start writing the next chapter of my life. I am hoping to include one of you in the “rest of the story”.

September Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that responses to your emails, applications, or phone calls will be delayed. I will be out of town for a little while and will try to catch up as quickly as I can when I get back. Thank you for your patience.

Also, for those of you who participate in the United Way Campaign at your workplace, we are eligible to receive those funds. If you would like to help our “kids” in that way, please use Homeward Bound CSP, Inc. for the name of the organization. United Way will contact me for the info they need.

We all thank you for your continued support in so many ways.

September Updates!

Hello all you Pei lovers. We are sorry for the lack of communication for the last few months. In answer to those of you who asked, yes, we are still in business. Unfortunately, it’s a sign of these tough economic times that there are more Pei than ever who need our help. We are over our legal limit, and we are still two people trying to keep up with all we need to do for those in our care. At this time we cannot take in any new dogs until some are placed. This economy offers us a double edged sword-more and more people are unable to keep their dogs, and less and less people are in a position to adopt.

We do have some beautiful Pei available for those of you who might be considering adopting. If so, please get in touch.

We hope you all had a great summer, and we will try to do better in letting you know what is happening at the rescue. Thank you for your concern for us and our “kids”. Although sometimes having so many dogs here at our home seems overwhelming, we are grateful to be able to provide them the care they need until they find their “forever” homes. It is with your continued support in so many ways that we are able to do that.

Upcoming Events

Event News:

The May 3rd "Animals on Broadway" event in Walnut Creek was a huge success! Despite the rain, Holly and Hunter, both rescues, were on-site to welcome the crowd. The turnout was great, and we raised almost $500 in donations and merchandise sales. We were thrilled to talk to so many families interested in adopting. A special thanks to Deanna Liskey, Pam Rogers, and Tami Mitchell for all their help with the event.

Our next event will be at H.A.L.O.'s 11th Annual "Ramble 'Round the Reservoir" at Contra Loma Regional Park in Antioch, CA on Sunday, June 21st, from 10AM - 2PM. The reservior dog walk will be followed by pet photos, dog contests, and a silent auction. You and your best friend can even enjoy a small agility course. Admission to the Ramble is free, and lunch will be served with a small donation. Stop by the California Shar-Pei Rescue booth to learn more about our wonderful kids available for adoption.

Animals on Broadway

Upcoming Event:

It’s time to start thinking about Broadway. No, not the theatre, but Animals on Broadway, a spectacular annual event at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek where people and pets join together and spend the day celebrating the joy of being best friends. And this year, California Shar Pei Rescue will be there.

Whether you're interested in adopting, have questions about the breed, or want to help our fundraising with the purchase of designer Shar Pei clothing and accessories - this is the event for you!

There's fun for the entire family! After visiting the California Shar Pei Rescue booth, you can fill your day browsing numerous other booths, with gifts, pet clothing and costumes, people and pet jewelry, artwork, gourmet pet treats, and professional pet photography, to name a few. There will be dog obedience and training classes, Cutest Beg and Silly Pet Tricks contests, live music, face painting, and even a dog wash.

Sunday, May 3, 2009 11 AM - 4 PM Broadway Plaza Shopping Center, Walnut Creek (So. Main Street & Mt. Diablo Blvd.)

Questions? Call Alexa Langona at (925) 997-0324. Hope to see you there!

More On Willard

Kathy Allred, Willard’s new “mom”, sends her heartfelt thanks to all who donated to help cover Willard’s multiple surgeries:

"Hi Anna,

One more thing. I know you have already thanked all the donors for Willard. However, I would like to thank them also. Willard is just so sweet and he certainly deserves to be loved as much as he is. If it weren't for all his vet bills being paid by all the donations he received and you so generously volunteering to pay for his surgeries, I'm sure he would have had to wait much longer for a forever home. I would not have known the joy of being Willard's new BFF!

I appreciate everyone who helped Willard more than words can ever express and I especially appreciate all you do for these kids. I have had the opportunity to love 3 of your kids and it wouldn't have been possible but for you."
